Series: 1. Correspondence, 1927-2009
Scope and Content Note: This series is comprised largely of incoming correspondence, with the bulk of the material dating from 1967, when Liddy moved to the United States, to 2008. It shows his relationships with family and friends, other poets and writers, and former students who became friends, as well as some of the business side of Liddy's work. Liddy used some of the early third-party and family letters for his memoirs. The folders labeled "Unopened and Unsent Letters" contain letters that were either received by Liddy but never opened or written by Liddy and never sent. Sealed envelopes were opened by the archivist during processing. The correspondence is organized by surname, then chronologically. A brief note about the sender or recipient is provided.
